Nissan GT-R scores top-5 finish at Circuit Paul Ricard

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

Le CASTELLET, France — The #nissangtr has scored a top-5 finish at #circuitpaulricard for the second consecutive year, with Lucas Ordóñez, #alexbuncombe and #katsumasachiyo leading the charge for Motul Team RJN.

The teams of the Blancpain GT Championship #endurance Cup had to deal with blistering heat all weekend in the south of France. The team even installed a blow-up pool in the paddock for the drivers to cool off between stints.

While both #nissan GT-Rs were disappointed after qualifying, the No. 23 entry of factory aces Ordóñez/Buncombe/Chiyo and the No. 22 car of Matt Simmons, Matt Parry and Struan Moore performed better in the race.

The No. 22 GT-R qualified 25th and initially fell back in the field before beginning its march forward. The No. 23 GT-R, which started from 32nd on the grid, made it to the top-10 by nightfall.

Simmons, Parry and Moore just missed out on a top-10 finish, crossing the line in 11th. For former #nissan GT Academy winner Simmons, it was the most impressive weekend yet of his Blancpain GT career.
